THE MECH WHO LOVED ME saved me from reading another terrible Steampunk. I’m so glad that McMaster is continuing this series in this spin off. I’m reading this book for our Romance Roundabout Challenge on Goodreads and I have to say, this is definitely one of the better PNR/Steampunk series I’ve read.
I was really excited about this book because it’s Ava’s book! Ava is a character that was introduced very early on in the first book in the series. She made such a big impression that I actually thought that she was the heroine of the first book before Ingrid walked onto the page. However, that increased my anticipation because now I was eager for Ava to get her happily ever after.
Once Brynes and Ingrid tie the knot, Ava is feeling sad about her own status. She wishes to be married but doesn’t have anyone around her that she considers good man material. However, there’s no doubt that she is intensely attracted to Kincaid, who was also in the first book of the series.
I think these two are a match made in heaven. Very different from each other, they offer various sides of the spectrum in terms of personality. Ava is sweet but tortured, and Kincaid is steady but doesn’t show his feelings very much. It’s an interesting dynamic and paired with the high level of action and suspense in this book, you get a very engaging read.
I really hope McMaster continues to write more books in this series. This world is just too good to pass up.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
